Sat at a table outside the restaurant, and enjoyed drinks with our beautiful sunset view. Relaxed service with no pressure to buy lots of food. Much appreciated, as were the great photos we got.

The restaurant is not large, slightly noisy, but a great vista. Cheery waitress and mine host. Lunch menu was varied and interesting. Took a while following giving our orders, but not too bad for lunch. Dinner menu a little on the expensive side for me.

Stay away from the seafood. Prawns squiggy/ pasty/soft. Over cooked baramundi. Husband's steak was fine. Coffee great. Good service.

The cafe is quite small and was just a touch noisy, but not too bad. Next time I would request the upper level. Service was good. Food was good. It was great place to meet up with interstate visitors for lunch. Because it was called a "cafe", I was originally unsure if they served Wine. Their website had menus, but... More

This cafe is on the corner of Jetty road and the esplanade and has a great view of the jetty and the bay. The food was good!

Sunday and the cafe was busy. We took a table outside and were first surprised how good the menu was. Good range of food including local seafood. I had chicken breast. Full table service is not common in Adelaide cafes and it was appreciated. Food was fabulous and exceeded my expectations. I think I could revisit this one. Maybe the... More

The food was delicious, they were very accommodating with dietary requests, most dishes were able to be modified so they were GF. The service was fantastic, the staff were all very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The... More

Wait staff were very welcoming and pleasant. The chef was happy to discuss with us questions about his dishes and we were all very happy with our food. It's the second time we have been there and can't wait to go again. Located across the road from the beach and the jetty, it's great to go for a walk on... More

We met up with a group of friends for a catch up during the happy hour from 3 to 6. I believe this applies everyday. With cheap drinks and pizzas we had a great time. We will be coming back again for happy hour.
